Edward Hugh Sothern (6 December, 1859 - 28 October, 1933) was an American actor. He was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, the son of English actor E. A. Sothern.

Sothern's first appearance was onstage in New York City. His father had encouraged other pursuits other than acting, but Sothern had already caught the acting bug. He was engaged in 1887 with Charles and Daniel Frohman in the stock company of the Lyceum Theatre. There he established himself as a dashing romantic leading man. He married actress Virginia Harned but divorced her to marry actress Julia Marlowe. As a couple, Marlowe and Sothern were known as the premier Shakespearian actors in their day.

Sothern also wrote some dozen plays which he appeared in; most are now lost. He starred in the first stage adaptation of The Prisoner of Zenda.

Sothern died in New York City.
